A Humble Road

Tuesday, August 29, 2017 8:49 PM


Gloria dedicates her life to providing live in services for the elderly or disabled. Currently, her commute is one to two hours by bus. With a car, this journey would only take thirty minutes. Gloria lives with each client six days a week and assists them by running errands, getting groceries, paying bills, etc. In order to get around, she must take costly cabs and her travel expenses add up quickly. Her current salary has her struggling for financial stability. Better paying jobs are available, but these are further away and not accessible by bus.

With this car award, Gloria will be able to take on new clients and increase her earnings. She loves traveling but hasn’t been outside of Maryland in years. She plans on taking a road trip up the Northeast to Vermont and sight-see along the way. But, most importantly, this car commemorates a new chapter in her life. It took her twelve years to get a vehicle after co-signing for a car with a friend who, unbeknownst to her, had no insurance. After a long while of being in debt, the MVA offered her amnesty. Gloria is grateful for the lesson she learned and because of this experience, she decided to name her car “Humble”.
